I have a 2009 sporter, krinkle painted receiver, and matt finished barrel.i have been thinking of sending it off to CPC for the works.Also I donít mind the krinkle receiver,but the matt barrel bugs me. I have a 2013 blued barrel,leftover from a target build. It was/is a great shooter on the original Tupperware carbine.So I was thinking of having Randy cut that barrel and put it on the krinkle receiver.
But as I have been reading the threads and other info on the web , the krinkle/ Matt
1022 s were only produced for a few years , and LOL might be collectible.

Is this possible? If so , does any one want it?

Also , as I remember that 2013 blue barrel shot a lot better than the 2009 Matt barrel. Is there a real reason for this , or is it the luck of the draw thing?

Are you going to live long enough for a krinkle finish 10/22 to be worth anything remotely substantial?

These are mass produced 10/22/s that are not rare.
Modify it as you wish.
Then enjoy its accuracy, 10/22ís are meant to be modified and shot.
Ultimate 10í22ís are built to be user self defined and not museum pieces.
Make your gun unique and then enjoy the benefits of a tack driver.

Will do!

Just didnít want to paint a mustache on the Mona Lisa.

What do you think about the barrel swap? 2013 polished blue replacing the 2009 Matt finish. When you look closley the whole 2009 barrel is spiral cut, covered in little tiny concentric ribs, like it was turned on a lathe.its just weird.

From what Randy has told me..
He LIKES. The newer factory barrels.
Ruger makes Really good barrels.
My factory barrels shoot very well.
You will be pleased.
Send him the Matt.

Those markings are from the hammers used to "forge" the barrel around a mandrel. I have had decent results from the Ruger hammer forged barrels. If the concern is the matte finish, it is just an appearance issue and Cerakote will solve it.

Smile Redemption!

Well because I am a cheap *******, I decidided to give it one last try before surgery. So apart it it came, cleaned an oiled it was , and then , from deep within The recesses of my lizard brain came the word s ďpressure pad,Pressure pads fix bad spotters.Ē

So I looked around for a bicycle inner tube, or a piece of felt. Neither was at hand. I was in a state of dismay, looking thru my findings box I found a little piece of leather from a long ago brief case. Scissors applied , leather pad in place 2 inches in front of the action, right where the the inlet rose to meet the barrel , a little dab of glue and I was pressure padded.

Went to the range and low and behold , off the bag and my shoulder and this little gun was spot on at 50 yards with a 3 x 9 Cabellas rimfire scope ,grouping all 10 rounds inside an inch at 50 yards ,with blazer ammo , target after target. Thatís all I want from a sporter. Especially a crinkle Sporter.

So now Iíll have to find something worthy of going to CPC.

If you have a factory barrel that will do that, then you have a gem. I can't do that with any barrel I own. At least not with any consistency at all.

Here's a 5 shot group at 25 yards that's 5 in the same hole... don't have any 50 yard groups handy but 5 under a dime is pretty routine
